What's your new role about?

What's better than supporting engineers that reach millions of concurrent users globally? It is doing it with millions of more users in mind. As a Scrum Master at DAZN, you will be responsible for supporting our Software Engineering teams, their leadership and the organisation to realise the value of the agile culture, frameworks, and tools. We want to build a learning organisation, where value flows through energised teams to our delighted customers.

Come and be part of the incredibly energised agile-coaching team. We're looking for passionate Scrum Masters who want to help us build a strong engineering culture where we deliver great products, collaborate to get things done in a fun, intense, and vibrant workplace.

  • Train, coach, and mentor teams on agile principles, frameworks and tools.
  • Organise and facilitate team events, aiming at growing team capabilities to do it autonomously.
  • Effectively support multiple teams.
  • Work with the Agile Coaching Team and other stakeholders on developing the agile culture across the organisation.

  • Identify, communicate, and remove agility blockers within and across teams.

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Have worked as a dedicated Scrum Master
  • Have used different agile frameworks and practices and can coach the team's adoption of the fittest
  • Can facilitate sessions with multiple stakeholders and conflicting priorities and successfully help the group to achieve its goals

  • You work in teams for the teams, and everyone can feel your genuine intention to help them grow better as a team
  • Excellent communication and influencing skills with all seniority levels

NOT ESSENTIAL BUT GREAT IF YOU ALSO HAVE

  • Experience in implementing changes in large organizations 
  • Scrum or Kanban Certification 
  • Admin level familiarity with Jira and similar tools 
  • Skills in creating and delivering agile training 
  • Technical background and readiness to discuss process improvement with the development team
